I had the good fortune to be introduced to the “Overeaters Anonymous: A Vision For You” website. At this website they study, in depth, the first 164 pages of the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous. They meet Monday through Friday at 7:00 AM Eastern Time on the telephone.
On Sundays they have Special Edition meetings, covering various topics and personal stories of transformations made possible through the teaching and practice of the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions of Overeaters Anonymous. Question and answer periods are also included.
Fortunately these meetings are recorded and archived so they are easily accessed to be listened to on line. It is exciting for me to hear people calling in with questions from various states, provinces and different countries.
Recently “A Vision For You” had its first convention on the east coast of Virginia and I heard that 500 OA members attended. There is a lot of recovery on this website and so I was not surprised to learn that the majority in attendance were at a healthy weight. I would have loved to have been there as I heard it was life changing.
Listening to the podcasts on this site has given me a deeper understanding of my disease, along with the work and commitment required to recover by following the simple instructions as outlined in the BB, One Day At A Time.
I will definitely be turning to this site often during the holiday season to help me stay on track.
In service, … Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays
